HISTORY 



Graduate education at North Carolina A. and T. State University was authorized 
by the North Carolina State Legislature in 1939. The authorization provided for 
training in agriculture, technology, applied science, and applied areas of study. An 
extension of the graduate program, approved by the General Assembly of North 
Carolina in 1957, provided for enlargement of the curriculum to include teacher 
education, as well as such other programs of a professional or occupational nature 
as might be approved by the North Carolina State Board of Higher Education. 

On July 1, 1967, the legislature of North Carolina approved regional university 
status for the institution and renamed it North Carolina Agricultural and Technical 
State University. The graduate responsibilities of the institution as a regional 
university are to prepare teachers, supervisors, and administrators for the master's 
degree, to offer master's degree programs in the liberal arts and sciences, and to 
conduct such other programs as are deemed necessary to meet the needs of its 
constituency and of the state. 



PURPOSE 

The Graduate School coordinates advanced course offerings of all departments 
within the School of Agriculture, the School of Education and General Studies, and 
the School of Engineering. Thus, the Graduate School offers advanced study for 
qualified individuals who wish to improve their competence for careers in profes- 
sions related to agriculture, applied science, education, science research, and tech- 
nology. Such study of information and techniques is provided through curricula 
leading to the Master of Science degree and through institutes and workshops 
designed for those who are not candidates for a higher degree. Second, the Gradu- 
ate School provides a foundation of knowledge and of techniques for those who 
wish to continue their education in doctoral programs at other institutions. Third, 
the Graduate School assumes the responsibility of encouraging scholarly research 
among students and faculty members. 

It is expected that, while studying at this college, graduate students (1) will 
acquire special competence in at least one field of knowledge; (2) will develop 
further their ability to think independently and constructively; (3) will develop and 
demonstrate the ability to collect, organize, evaluate, and report facts which will 
enable them to make a scholarly contribution to knowledge about their discipline; 
and (4) will make new applications and adaptations of existing knowledge so as 
to contribute to their profession and to mankind. 



ORGANIZATION 

Graduate School Council 

The Graduate School Council is responsible for formulating all academic policies 
and regulations affecting graduate students, graduate courses, and graduate cur- 
ricula. The council consists of the chairmen of the departments offering concentra- 
tions in graduate studies, the deans of the schools offering graduate instruction, the 
Director of the Summer School, the Dean of Academic Affairs, the Director of 
Admissions and Records, and the Director of Teacher Education. The Dean of the 
Graduate School serves as chairman of the council. 



ADVISORY COMMITTEES OF THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

ADMISSION AND OTHER INFORMATION 



Admission to Graduate Study 

All applicants for graduate study must have earned a bachelor's degree from 
a four-year college. Application forms may be obtained from the office with two 
transcripts of previous undergraduate and graduate studies. Processing of applica- 
tions cannot be guaranteed unless they are received, with all supporting documents, 
in the Graduate Office at least fifteen days before a registration period. Applicants 
may be admitted to graduate studies unconditionally, provisionally, or as special 
students. 



UNCONDITIONAL ADMISSION 

To qualify for unconditional admission to graduate studies, an applicant must 
have earned an over-all average of 2.6 on a 4 point system (or 1.6 on a 3 point sys- 
tem) in his undergraduate studies. In addition, a student seeking a degree in 
Agricultural Education, Elementary Education, Industrial Education, or Secondary 
Education must possess, or be qualified to possess, a Class A Teaching Certificate 
in the area in which he wishes to concentrate his graduate studies. A student seek- 
ing a degree with concentration in Administration and Supervision of Guidance 
must possess, or be qualified to possess, a Class A Teaching Certificate. 

PROVISIONAL ADMISSION 

An applicant may be admitted to graduate studies on a provisional basis if 
(1) he earned his baccalaureate degree from a non-accredited institution or (2) the 
record of his undergraduate preparation reveals deficiencies that can be removed 
near the beginning of his graduate study. A student admitted provisionally may be 
required to pass examinations to demonstrate his knowledge in specified areas, to 
take specified undergraduate courses to improve his background, or to demonstrate 
his competence for graduate work by earning no grades below "B" in his first nine 
hours of graduate work at this institution. 

SPECIAL STUDENTS 

Students not seeking a graduate degree at A. and T. may be admitted in order to 
take courses for self-improvement or for renewal of teaching certificate. If a 
student subsequently wishes to pursue a degree program, he must request an 
evaluation of his record. The Graduate School reserves the right to refuse to accept 
towards a degree program credits which the candidate earned while enrolled as a 
special student; in no circumstance may the student apply towards a degree pro- 
gram more than twelve semester hours earned as a special student. 

Housing 

The college maintains seven residence halls for women and three for men. A 
request for dormitory housing accommodation should be directed to the Dean of 
Students at least sixty days prior to the expected date of registration. 



Food Services 

The college provides food service for students at minimum cost. Two well- 
equipped cafeterias and a snack bar are operated at convenient locations on the 
campus. Students who live in the residence halls are required to eat in the 
cafeterias. 



FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE 



GRADUATE ASSISTANTS 

A limited number of graduate assistantships are available to qualified individuals. 
The student is assigned to assist a professor or a department twenty hours per week 
for the duration of the assistantship. Some graduate assistants are assigned to teach 
freshman classes. Normally, a graduate assistant will be assigned to teach only 
one class per semester, but he may be assigned to teach a maximum of two. The 
assistantship offers a stipend in addition to the funds required for tuition, fees, 
books, and board and lodging expenses for residence on campus. Application for an 
assistantship must be made to the Dean of the Graduate School at least 60 days 
before the term of registration. Only full-time graduate students are eligible. 

OTHER ASSISTANCE 

For 1968-69, the Graduate School has fellowships under Title V for prospective 
teachers in Elementary Education. For details, write to the Graduate Office. 

Funds, such as the National Defense Student Loan Fund, are available in 
limited quantity for students. Requests for information concerning these funds 
should be directed to the Graduate School. 



EXPENSES 

The fees charged to full-time graduate students carrying 12 or more semester 
hours of work are the same as those charged to full-time undergraduate students. 
For one academic year, a state resident should expect to pay $368.00, which will 
cover tuition and course fees. This sum does not include room and board charges. 
Tuition and course fees for an out-of-state student carrying a full schedule will 
total $767.00 for the academic year. Current room and board rates are $283.00 per 
semester. 

For the summer each in-state student pays $8.40 per credit hour for tuition; each 
out-of-state student pays $10.50 per credit hour for tuition. Other fees amount to 
$3.80 per semester hour. Room and board are $17.50 per week. 

As student fees are subject to change without prior notice, it is suggested that 
the Cashier's Office be consulted for complete information concerning charges for 
full- and part-time students. 

SPECIAL FEES 

Fee for processing application (required only for first 

application for graduate studies) $ 5.00 

Late registration 5.00 

Graduation fees (Diploma and rental of academic regalia) 25.00 

Transcript (after first one) 1.00 

Master's thesis binding fee 20.00 

AUDITING 

To audit a course, a student must obtain permission from the Dean of the Gradu- 
ate School and must submit the necessary forms during the registration period. A 
part time student must pay all fees, including tuition, that would be charged to a 
student taking the course for credit. A full-time student is not required to pay any 
additional fees for auditing. A change from "credit" registration to "audit" will not 
be permitted after the close of the deadline date for withdrawing from a course. An 
auditor is not required to participate in class discussions, prepare assignments, or 
take examinations.

SCHEDULE OF DEADLINES 

The Graduate School provides schedules of specific dates for completing 
various requirements for a degree program. These notices are not sent to individuals 
automatically, but may be found in the calendar of the Graduate School, available 
upon request. 



REQUESTS FOR GRADE REPORTS AND TRANSCRIPTS 

The Office of Registration and Records is the official record-keeping office at the 
college. Requests for official statements regarding courses completed, grade re- 
ports, or transcripts should be filed in that office. 



11 



GENERAL REGULATIONS 



Advising 

Until he is assigned to an advisor after he has been accepted as a candidate in 
a degree program, a graduate student is advised by a member of the graduate 
faculty appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. The student, however, 
should consult and follow the curriculum guide prepared for his area of concentra- 
tion. Separate curriculum guide sheets are available in the office of the department 
offering the concentration. They may be secured also from the Graduate School 
Office 8 n 

"Special" students are advised by members of the graduate faculty appointed by 
the Dean of the Graduate School. 



Class Loads 

FULL-TIME STUDENTS 

Class loads for the full-time student may range from 12 to 15 semester hours 
during a regular session of the academic year. 

IN-SERVICE TEACHERS 

The maximum load for a fully employed in-service teacher must not exceed six 
semester hours during any academic year. 

COLLEGE STAFF 

The maximum load for any fully employed member of the college faculty or staff 
will be six semester hours for the academic year. 



Concurrent Registration in Other Institutions 

A student registered in a degree program in this Graduate School may not enroll 
concurrently in another graduate school except upon permission, secured in 
advance, from the Dean ofthe Graduate School. 



Grading System 

Grades for graduate students are recorded as follows: A, excellent; B, good; C, 
average; F, failure; S, work in progress (for courses in research); I, incomplete; 
W, withdrawal. 

1. In order to earn a degree, a student must have a cumulative average of "B," 
(a grade point average of 3.0 on a system in which 1 hour of A earns 4 grade 
points). 

2. A graduate student automatically goes on probation when his cumulative 
average falls below "B." 

3. A student will be dropped from the degree program if he has not removed 
himself from probation after two successive terms as a full-time student. 

4. A student may not repeat for credit a course in which he has earned a "C" or 
above. 

5. A student must repeat a required course in which he has earned an "F." A 
student may not repeat the course more than once. If a student fails a second 
time, he is dismissed from the degree program. 

12 



6. All hours attempted in graduate courses and all grade points earned are in- 
cluded in the computation of the cumulative average of a graduate student. 

7. A student who stops attending a course but fails to withdraw officially may 
be assigned a grade of "F." 

8. All grades of "I" must be removed during the student's next term of residence. 

9. A student may not count towards a degree program any course in which he 
has earned a grade of "F." 

Note: The North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction does not 
accept towards renewal of certification any course in which a student has received 
a grade of "D" or "F." 



Professional Education Requirements for Class A 
Teaching Certificate 

The Department of Public Instruction of North Carolina requires 18 semester 
hours of credit in professional education courses for all applicants for Class A teach- 
ing certificates on the secondary level. These hours must include six credits in the 
sociological, historical, and philosophical foundations of American education; four 
credits in psychological foundations of education; two credits in curriculum, in- 
structional procedures, materials, and methods; and six credits in student teaching. 
The applicant for a Class A teaching certificate on the elementary level must 
satisfy the requirements stated above and must also have two additional credits in 
psychological foundations of education and four additional credits in curriculum, 
materials, and methods. 

In all graduate degree programs except that leading to a Master of Science in 
Chemistry, the student at A and T State University must hold a Class A certificate 
before he can be admitted as a candidate. To provide for the student who enters 

Graduate studies without the required credits in courses in education, the Graduate 
chool offers the following program: Education 2180, Education 2140, (Principles 
and Curricula of Secondary Schools), Psychology 2154 (Psychological Foundations 
of Education), Guidance 2378, a three-semester hour course in methods of teaching, 
and six hours of student teaching. Ed. 2140, the course in methods, and the student 
teaching may be taken during the same semester. Ed. 2140, Psy. 2154, the methods 
course, and the student teaching offer undergraduate credit only. 

The program stated above is intended for and required of all students pursuing 
degree programs in agricultural, industrial, or secondary education or in adminis- 
tration and supervision or guidance who have taken no undergraduate courses in 
professional education. Students who have earned some but not enough under- 
graduate credits in education and students without "A" certificates who are seeking 
graduate degrees in elementary education should consult with the Chairman of the 
Department of Education or the Dean of the Graduate School to work out a program 
to meet certification requirements. 

While taking undergraduate courses in education and psychology to meet cer- 
tification requirements, a student may enroll in graduate -level courses in his 
subject-matter area of concentration if he has completed the undergraduate re- 
quirements in that area. 



Subject-matter Requirements for Class A 
Teaching Certificate 

If a student has not completed sufficient undergraduate courses in a subject- 
matter field to hold a Class A certificate in that subject, he should consult with 
the chairman of the department offering that concentration. Together, they must 
work out a program to satisfy the undergraduate deficiencies by means of under- 
graduate courses or courses open to undergraduates and graduates.

REGULATIONS FOR A MASTER'S DEGREE 



Admission to Candidacy for a Degree 

Admission to graduate studies does not guarantee admission to candidacy for a 
degree. In order to be qualified as a candidate for a degree, a student must Tiave a 
minimum overall average of 3.0 in at least nine semester hours of graduate work at 
A. and T., must have removed all deficiencies resulting from undergraduate 
preparation, and must have passed the Qualifying Essay. A candidate for a degree 
in Agricultural Education, Education, or Industrial Education must have earned a 
minimum score of 500 in the common and in special fields sections of the National 
Teachers Examinations. Some departments require additional qualifying examina- 
tions. 

The following is the procedure for securing admission to candidacy: 

1. The student secures application forms for admission to candidacy from the 
Graduate Office, fills them out, and returns them to that office. This step should be 
taken as soon as possible after the student has decided upon a degree program. 

2. The Graduate Office processes the application, notifies the student of the 
action, and informs him of the time when the Qualifying Essay will next be 
administered. 

3. The student may take the Qualifying Essay during his first term of residence 
in graduate studies, if a student fails the Qualifying Essay, he may take it a second 
time. After a second failure he must enroll in a prescribed English composition 
course (English 2440 or 2472) at this university and must earn a grade of "C" or 
above. 

4. As soon as possible after applying for admission, the student should send to 
the Graduate Office an official copy of his scores on the National Teachers 
Examination. Application for that examination should be made in the Office of the 
Department of Education. In 1968, the score required for admission to candidacy 
is 500 or above on the common section and 500 on the special fields section. 

5. The Graduate Office informs the student of any qualifying examinations 
required by the department in which he is concentrating his studies. 

6. After the student has completed at least nine semester hours of graduate 
study at the college, he becomes eligible for admission to candidacy. Iff at that 
time, he has maintained an average of 3.0 in his graduate studies, has passed the 
Qualifying Essay and all departmental qualifying examinations, and has earned 
the required minimum on the NTE, the Graduate School informs him that he has 
been admitted to candidacy and assigns him to an adviser in his field of concentra- 
tion. 

In order to be eligible for graduation during a term, a student must have been 
admitted to candidacy no less than fifteen days prior to the deadline for filing for 
graduation during that term. 

Credit Requirements 

The minimum credit requirements for a graduate degree, are thirty semester 
hours for students in thesis and non-thesis programs. It is expected that a student 
can complete a program by studying full-time for an academic year and one addi- 
tional summer term or by studying full-time during four nine-week summer 
sessions. 



RESIDENCE REQUIREMENTS 

A minimum of three-fourths of the hours required for the degree must be earned 
in residence study at the university. 

14 



TIME LIMITATION 

The graduate program must be completed within six successive calendar years. 
Programs remaining incomplete after this time interval are subject to cancellation, 
revision, or special examination for out-dated work. 

When the program of study is interrupted because the student has been drafted 
into the armed services, the time limit snail be extended for the length of time the 
student shall have been on active duty, if the candidate resumes graduate work no 
later than one year following his release from military service. 



Course Levels 

At the university, four-digit numbers are used to designate all course 
offerings. The last two digits indicate the classification level of the course. 
Courses ending in -70 through -84 are open to seniors and to graduate students. 
Courses ending in -85 through -99 are open only to graduate students. At least 
fifty percent of the courses counted in the work towards a Master's degree must 
be those open only to graduate students; that is, numbered -85 through -99. 



Transfer of Credit 

A maximum of six semester hours of graduate credit may be transferred 
from another graduate institution if (1) the credit has been earned within six 
years of the date on which the requirements are completed for the Master's 
degree, (2) the work is acceptable as credit toward a comparable degree at the 
institution from which transfer is sought, and (3) the courses to be transferred 
are approved by the Dean of the Graduate School. 

To request a transfer of credit, the student must complete an application in the 
Graduate School Office. It will be the applicant's responsibility to request from
